Dedicated September 27, 1910

Towering 69 feet above the battlefield, this massive monument honors all Pennsylvanians who participated in the Battle of Gettysburg. Originally, 34,530 names were inscribed on 90 tablets, each representing a different regiment. However, the rosters, taken from original army payroll forms, contained numerous misspellings as well as the names of men who had died, deserted, or been captured before the battle. To this day, work continues on the correction, insertion, and removal of names.

Sculptor Samuel Murray cast the bronze “Goddess of Victory and Peace” statue atop the monument from melted down cannons used in the war. He also sculpted granite monoliths depicting various phases of the battle above each of the four archways. W. Liance Cottrell, the monument’s architect, had planned on portrait statues flanking each arch, but the budget was depleted before the unveiling. The necessary funding was appropriated to have the statues completed by several artists in time for the Fiftieth Anniversary celebration in 1913. These eight-foot tall bronze statues represent President Abraham Lincoln; Andrew Curtin, the state’s war-governor; and six Pennsylvania-born generals.
